Single-Car Crash Injures Five in Charlotte, North Carolina

Comments (0)
On March 4, 2012, a car carrying five people ran off I-485 near the Brookshire Boulevard exit in Charlotte, North Carolina (NC), injuring all. The car hit a guardrail and metal pole before rolling over, and a 10-year-old passenger who was not wearing a seat belt was ejected from the vehicle. One of the injurd people had to be transported to a hosital by helicopter.

According to WCNC, the North Carolina Highway Patrol suspects the drivier was under the influence of an impairing substance other than alcohol. All five victims are expected to survive.


Luckily, no other cars were involved, or the number of victims and the severity of the injuries may have increased. Still, this accident will be made all the more tragic if it is determined that the driver used an illegal substance. It is important that the passengers that were injured in the car crash speak with a knowledgeable North Carolina car accident attorney to determine if a claim should be filed on their behalf.

Everyone can help keep drivers who are under the influence off the roads by calling 911 if they see someone who appears to be impaired. Review these tips for recognizing drivers who are drunk or stoned so you can do your part to help keep North Carolina roads safe.
